Polis, gay-rights activists applaud latest court ruling finding Prop 8 unconstitutional

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday announced it was upholding an earlier court ruling that California's Proposition 8 voter-passed ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional. The decision sets the stage for another appeal, likely to the U.S. Supreme Court, and drew applause from gay-rights advocates buoyed by another clear legal victory. Openly gay Colorado Congressman Jared Polis declared the ruling a victory for American notions of justice and equality.
